Demonstrated on Green Mountain
DENVER— On Tuesday, Oct. 16, the media and public are invited to meet with project leaders and view the innovative technology equipment that will be tested to detect potential buried munitions on the former Camp George West Artillery Range in the open space of the north slopes of Green Mountain. The session is scheduled from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the end of West Virginia Drive near the water tank (see attachment).
The Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) is the Department of Defense (DoD) demonstration and validation program for environmental and energy technologies. The program was established in 1995 to identify and demonstrate the most promising innovative and cost-effective technologies and methods that address DoD’s high-priority environmental requirements. The program conducts formal demonstrations in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings.
The project on Green Mountain, a collaboration of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and DoD, is designed to demonstrate the use of innovative technologies for detecting potential buried munitions on select sites across the country. The ESTCP contractor has been working with CDPHE, the Colorado Army National Guard and the City of Lakewood to identify the best location for this demonstration project.
